This run of shows at The Greek does not need to be taken in historical context. It stands quite fine on its own as one of the bands best runs of their entire career. For this show, there are many superb highlights and I urge the reader/listener to check out every single song in these sets. Each has something extra and wonderful. The band’s new fully digital equipment and P.A. system is nearly fearsome and certainly was startling in person. It’s obvious that the sound was perfect as the audience gels and coalesces with the band in a way that only happens when everybody in the venue is completely captured by the music both sonically and performance-wise. The companion recording from Weber-small from the same spot is equally dazzling and very highly recommended. I agree with Sir-mix, pretty please with a cherry on top for an upload on the 16th from this same source.

The second set is awesome. Box, Victim, GDTRFB, Watchtower, Believe It Or Not, and more... all awesomely played and the energy was incredible. The Greek was always special, and 1988 was the end of the Greek for the Grateful Dead because we just couldn't behave ourselves. Those were the days!!!
I miss these times, and I love this show... so highest rating it is.
